Catch royal wedding on the big screen

THE ROYAL Wedding will be shown on a huge screen in Princes Park.

Residents and holidaymakers are invited to take a picnic along to the seafront park and enjoy watching Prince William and Kate Middleton’s nuptials on a 25-square metre screen.

The park will be decorated with red, white and blue flags and bunting - and there will be live music from ER Riley’s Rockin Soul and the Mojo Makers, with dancing through to the early evening.

An Eastbourne Borough Council spokesperson said, “We are very excited to join the millions of people up and down the country who will be celebrating the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

“With street parties taking place around the town, our event in Princes Park will offer the chance for the whole community to come together to mark the occasion.

“I’m sure it will be a popular option for visitors looking to escape the capital.

“With many of our hotels and guesthouses offering discounted rates for the weekend, Eastbourne makes a top choice for the Bank Holiday weekend.”

Visitors are encouraged to come dressed in their best red, white and blue clothes and royal regalia and there will be prizes awarded to best dressed man, best dressed woman, best dressed child and best dressed family.

There will be fun and games with giant musical chairs and tug o’war, and huge inflatables and slides to keep the little ones entertained plus face painting on offer.

A licensed bar and catering outlets will also be available on site.
